• Investors Fund

Fund Objective

The Investors Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.

Investment Strategies

The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets in the common stock of established, high-quality, growth companies.  The portfolio managers define “high-quality” companies as those businesses that have demonstrated stable revenue and earnings growth patterns and high profitability metrics, and that maintain proportionately low levels of debt. The fund may also invest up to 35% of its assets in foreign securities (including American Depositary Receipts and emerging market securities).  To the extent invested in common stocks, the fund generally invests in only 25-40 companies at any given time. This reflects Madison’s belief that your money should be invested in the adviser’s top investment ideas, and that focusing on Madison’s best investment ideas is the best way to achieve the fund’s investment objectives.
